I've lost 68lbs so far. I'm 5'7 and I started at 296 and now I'm at 228. I'm still significantly overweight for my height and want to lose atleast 35 more pounds to be where I think I'd be best feeling at.
My problem with my friends is they always mention it and say I'm already a different looking man I don't need to go farther. I just want to be healthier and I'm just not there yet with the belly I still have. I tell them I'm not where I want to be yet and they just look at me like I'm nuts or even say it's a waste of time.
For context. Everyone in our friends group is exceptionally overweight. I try to talk to them about health changes but it never sticks. I'm also very introverted so making new friends is hard especially when trying to maintain it.
